Former Middlesbrough midfielder Phil Stamp remains philosophical.

It’s the Steven Gerrard stamp that’s had us all whoopin’ and a-hollerin’, and it’s set to be immortalised on a special edition commemorative stamp.

The Liverpool midfielder, winding down, was sent off for a retaliatory tread on Ander Herrera within just 38 seconds of appearing as a second-half substitute in yesterday’s 1-2 defeat to Manchester United at Anfield.

Social media erupted with glee, at which Royal Mail took note and immediately set about making plans to issue a ‘Steven Gerrard stamp’ stamp just in case anyone still sends letters and that.

The Gerrard stamp stamp follows hot on the heels of the series of Gerrard slip commemorative dishes that were released towards the end of last season, not to mention the Uruguayan national day announced to celebrate Gerrard’s inadvertent World Cup assist to erstwhile clubmate Luis Suárez.

Speaking exclusively to Football Burp, former Middlesbrough midfielder Phil Stamp remained philosophical.

He said: “You’re not high profile enough to command interview time with anyone relevant, so you called me up while I’m at home looking after my kids just because my name is Stamp?

“That’s not just amateurish, that’s downright low.”
